Japan’s favourite dark beer. Brewed in Osaka, Asahi Black is made from three different roasted malts. This gives it a rich, nutty flavour and makes it incredibly smooth-drinking. Unlike other, more bitter dark beers and stouts, it’s brewed in a process called bottom fermentation, which gives it a subtle, sweet edge and smooth 5% abv.

tania_nexust (227) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Japan Centre. Hours a rich black. Not much aroma and body is a little thin but there are pleasant roasty tastes and as it’s not too heavy it actually pairs well with Japanese/Asian food.

Tranquillity (1422) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
A black lager, but it’s surprisingly ale-like. Black, slightly smoking aroma and the taste is quite the same. Great thick plate!

TET (1758) - FINLAND - OCT 2, 2014
A very dark brown, slightly red beer with a medium, and beige head. Thenose is malty, bread, slightly roasted, also sweet berries. Taste has bread, some roastiness, tense. Medium bodied, quite harsh palate. Not very convincing beer, quite tasteless and tense.

mikkopen (873) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2014
334 ml bottle. Deep dark brown colour, tan head. Roasted malty aroma, sweetish notes. Mild, roasted malty flavour, with coffee notes. OK, but nothing special.

Beachmaster (174) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle into a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Moderate tan head which quickly fades into a disc on the surface. No appreciable lacing. Nose is dark malt. Taste is faint amount of dark malt. Creamy mouth feel, with a long finish that leaves a somewhat odd, slightly bitter aftertaste. Not much here.

350ml can from Tokyo Liquor, Wyndham St, Ak, pours dark with a brief head, roasted malty aroma & a smooth thin bitterish sweet taste that is actually pretty good

yenbeer (51) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 9, 2014
Hard to find, but worth tracking down. Warm nutty aroma, followed by a rich coffee taste.

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Mit McTapps geteilt und im Tesco, Ryde geholt. Sehr stoutig, leicht bitter und vom Kaffee nebst malzigen Röstaromen dominiert. Tendenziell mit einer milden Süße zum Schluss. Unspektakulär, jedoch mit Charakter, aber das Industriebier kommt ganz klar durch.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Pours out of the bottle ( bought at Tesco in Ryde) in a deep black colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of malt and roast. Taste of roast, leaves, woods, malt, straw, bread and grains. Dry-bitter finish. Drinkable but nothing special.
